John Lennon is unquestionably one of the greatest music icons from the 60’s. The songs that John wrote during the few short years that the Beatles were together have become some of the most popular of all time. Very few of Johns’ original song manuscripts have ever been sold to the general public.
The song lyrics and archive sets being offered for sale here are the exact copies of John’s writings that Yoko has published in limited editions. These lyrics were first published in 1995 by Bag One Arts. There were two portfolios each containing ten limited song lyrics, One self portrait and a cover page. Each portfolio was done in an edition size of 1000, with 50 artist proofs.
The two portfolios were titled The Beatles Years and The Solo Years. The Beatles years was an instant hit and sold out from the publisher years ago. The songs that were the most popular have continued to become even more sought after and are now very difficult to find at any price. The Lyrics shown here have been held in a private collection and are now being offered for sale to the public. This is a rare opportunity to own one of the most desired collectibles in the world today.
Each lyric is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
